I was at a Requiem Mass today February 6, 2014

A local mother of 14 – yes, fourteen – died suddenly and unexpectedly in an accident earlier this week.  Would you please, in your charity, pray for the repose of the soul of Helen D?  Perhaps you might say a prayer for her family, including her adopted children.  God bless you.

It was a beautiful Requiem Mass.  I love the Libera Me sung after the Mass:

I did my usual lousy job recording a small part of the prayers over the catafalque after Mass:

One thing I can say, is that there was no instant canonization at this Mass.  We were counseled to pray, and pray hard, for the repose of the soul of the deceased.  That will be us, one day.

That’s it for today, I think.

In the NO parish, they use a white cover over the coffin. I know the priest doesn’t wear black either. And of course, the deceased is canonized if the priest knows the deceased.

May the Lord have mercy on this woman’s soul. God bless her for her generosity and motherhood. Praying for her now:+)

I will keep her in my prayers. I always pray a prayer for the dying in the morning and evening. I read a book about how important it is to pray for the dying. Please pray for a lady named Gail. She crashed and is in ICU right now. She has cancer and other issues.

Praying for Gail and for Helen. I have instructed my kids to pray and have Masses offered for me when I die. This instant canonization is a tool of the devil. The greatest lie of our times is “everyone dies and goes to a better place.” No. They don’t.

The Libera Me is indeed beautiful. Eternal rest grant unto her O Lord…
